First Position

First Position, 24x12 oil

Back to basics for my daughter. I asked her to pose for me in her old beat-up ballet slippers. She was into ballet for years and was a beautiful dancer.  You can tell she was a ballet dancer by the way she moves so gracefully.  When she gave it up and moved on to other interests, everything was packed away.  We searched everywhere for her pointe shoes without success, probably packed away in a box somewhere with various costumes.
